MY OPEN LETTER TO ROSS MATTHEWS.
This weekend I tried to find you.
I went to all the places you say you go, but you weren’t there.
Saturday I went to YOUR Target. I was there for 30 minutes. I didn’t see you.
I went to a Starbucks this morning and was there for 1o minutes – and again, you weren’t there.
I went to the Hollywood Farmers Market to buy vegetables, and saw some famous-ish people (Ilan from Top Chef, Nathan from The Next Food Network Star) but in the 27 minutes, and 1 complete lap of just the vegetable blocks, I did not see you.
I went to SoupPlantation, and an organic deli situation – but you were not there.
I drove through a neighborhood with lofts… but I did not see you walking Louise.
Tonight, I was at a different Target for like an hour, but I didnt see you there, either.
I’d already warned my friend that if I saw you, that I was going to have a really excited, ungraceful reaction, something to be embarrassed about, because I find you that funny. (She was prepared to pretend she didn’t know me) I had it planned out. I was going to whip out my nano, and video you and take a photo, and gush adoringly. I was going to recount my favorite segments from the Tonight Show, and say nice things about how your talking about more of yourself to us, and how I really like that. I was going to tell you that I miss the talkies, and getting to “go” to the gym – but that I like your new show. I was going to tell you I don’t live in an area with Ross Squash, but if I did I’d eat it often, and that I think it’s great your hitting the gym again – it’s inspiring.
I’m really sorry you missed it – because it would have been great!!
Maybe next time I’ll see you… I’ll certainly give it a good shot! I’ll try to gather up some “tips and tricks” on finding people – becuase apparently randomly showing up at places you could potentially randomly show up at, isnt the best plan.
